Everyone should vist this place and show support to the great work being done by the volunteers. While its not a zoo experiance the information is great. They need donations and public support as they get no funding.

Really great place to see and learn about these beautiful creatures. It's best to visit when the staff are doing a guided tour. Phone for times or see website. Really informative. Adopt a koala to provide financial support for the hospital. We adopted Barrington Xavier for our children.

This far exceeded our expectations. You could feed the kangaroos and stroke the koalas. The 'zoo' had a really nice atmosphere and the animals all looked very healthy. We enjoyed about 3 hrs in the place b

This is a place that is not only informative and valuable, but is really "feel good". It is one of very few places where koalas are nursed, and where we are learning a lot more about these cute little creatures. Koalas are taken there when they have been injured, or are found in a sick condition. The staff include people... More

Thank goodness for people like Jean and Max Starr. From humble beginnings to what now is an incredible facility. The Koala Hospital is not one to miss. My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the 3.00pm walk and talk we went to – the woman who spoke was extremely passionate and informative. We have purchased a little Barry Bear to take... More

This is an excellent facility that helps koalas recover from sickness and trauma. The volunteer staff run tours that are free. Its hard not to feel the compulsion to donate to this worthy cause. The whole extended family really enjoyed the experience.

Please donate to them. They are doing a good job trying to preserve the Koala's. They have daily FREE tours and show around the hospital and let you see the patient 'Koalas' who are very cute. This is a very informative tour and tells you a lot about how Koalas live in the wild and other interesting facts. Must visit.

It was fun to see so many Koalas and educational to know how the community protect and nurture them. Good stop-over for kids as well as adults
